Saranac Central School District Reviews

Saranac Central School District is a very inspiring school, they helped me accomplish a lot, not only academically, but also in ways one can never fathom. Saranac has some of the most astounding teachers, they have taught me so much not only in the New York State curriculums way but also in a way with a little more diversity. They have helped me get ready for college and they have provided many after school clubs and activities for the less athletic kids. There athletics program is one to be very proud of they have taught the key in life is teamwork and respect for the ones in charge, but they also have taught us to question things if we cant comprehend what we know. Saranac has many great clubs for those who like to be more artistic, like art club and baking club. there is a club for everything you can think of minus Rugby. I feel that Saranac would be a lot more interesting if we had a little more kids more willing to participate in things.

Saranac High School has a smaller student body of about 400 students. Despite the size, there are still a variety of clubs and sports to join such as Key club, outdoor club, art club, and drama club. The staff at Saranac is great as well. I have felt that most of them care about their students and show a willingness to adapt. The teachers are not afraid to support student activity, as I see many of them at concerts and sporting events. One thing I wish Saranac had was more AP and advanced classes that would elevate student resume's when applying to college.
Saranac High School had amazing teachers who would connect with students, and help them with all they could. The school was a very rural and there were many people interested in hunting and fishing, and the typical redneck traits. There was also a huge focus on doing well in classes, both by students, and teachers. The administration tended to mistreat some of their staff. There wasn't much diversity in clubs or available classes. the main population of the school were Caucasian people.
